They carry the intensity, depth and flavor of world-class Barolo, yet delivered in a delicate, elegant way.
Singular and unforgettable, these breathtaking wines are full of energy and life. This week we are excited to be featuring four of these Italian treasures. Precision and beauty align with an exultation of terroir!
Colombera & Garella 'Coste della Sesia' 2018 $29.99
A classic Alto Piemonte blend, mostly Nebbiolo with a splash of Croatina. The latter giving color and some juicy fruit to the wine. Showcasing notes of tart red fruits, white pepper, and mint. Lifted and elegant with a long finish. Structured yet smooth, a stunning wine from a high elevation site.
Colombera & Garella 'Vispavola' 2018 $29.99
A wine that encapsulates the essence of this cool, mountainous region. Comprised entierly of the native Vespolina. The wine boasts bright acidity and crunchy red berries, with a mineral backbone and satin tannins. The forward fruit is complemented by notes of pepper, cedar, citrus, and green tea. A perfect pair to a rich ravioli or creamy pasta.
Colombera & Garella 'Lessona' 2016 $48.99
The jewel in Alto Piemonte's crown. This Nebbiolo blend has all the complexity and depth of the more famous Barolo and Barbaresco but packed in softer, lighter frame. Delicate, light, ethereal, yet concentrated in flavor. Bright red fruits with a firm mineral backbone and hints of Alpine herbs and spice. A magical wine that will really elevate your next meal.
Colombera & Garella 'Bramaterra' 2015 $48.99
Slightly more structured than the 'Lessona' with a deep complexity that is delivered with power and intensity. At five years on, it is truly singing from the moment you pop the cork. A beautiful bouquet opens up to tart, soft red fruits, spice and floral notes, followed by mellow tobacco, earth and tried rose petal.
